T.S. Kennedy returns from hurricane relief activationThe following is excerpted from a bulletin published November 17 by Massachusetts Maritime Academy. AMO-contracted General Dynamics American Overseas Marine operated the Kennedy during the activation.
T.S. Kennedy returned on 0848 slack tide on 17 November after being activated in early September for hurricane relief support. MMA staff combined with staff hired through AMSEA of Quincy, Mass. crewed up the vessel for the last two and half months. While deployed, the Kennedy provided berthing to federal employees totaling in excess of 13,000 nights of lodging and over 30,000 meals served during this period of time. U.S. Maritime Administrator Buzby recently sent congratulatory correspondence to all those who assisted in the relief effort.
